Not Forgotten

I'm back! The Forgotten Archosaurs is not forgotten!

I'm making some changes, but I'm working on making this an active blog once more. Things to look forward to in the coming months: guest posts by archosaur workers, interviews, "forgotten archosaurs" in the news, and more!

In the meantime, here's Dromicosuchus.


Dromicosuchus grallator was first named and described by Sues et al in 2003. It is a "spenosuchian"-grade crocodylomorph - a fleet-footed, fox-like little croc - from the Late Triassic of North Carolina. I've been working with this specimen quite a bit recently. Thanks to additional prep work, CT scanning, and new comparative material I've been discovering new aspects of the anatomy of Dromicosuchus, especially details of the braincase and forelimb. I hope to be publishing on this in the next year or 2, so stay tuned.
